“Sun, sea and sealife, quiet relaxation and no cars!!”

We have stayed in Crovie before and this re-visit did not disappoint. The cottage is cosy when the wind howls and the open fire and underfloor heating makes it suitable for any conditions.
We saw a pod of dolphins cross and recross the bay, and when 'night fishing' (it was still light at mid-night) a pair of sea otters came to investigate!
The cottage has everything you might want and the relaxed attitude to leaving non-perishable everyday items such as cooking oil, canned goods and toiletries means that you don't have to take half used washing up liquid home nor throw it away - environmentally sound.
If you can tear yourself away from the cottage it is close to long sandy beaches (Fraserborough) and other attractions in Banff but we just stayed put and had a brilliant time on the rocks, fishing (caught only 3 all week), sitting on the path outside the cottage and just chilling.
As a guide - we had electric underfloor heating on all week, showers (4) each day and heated the water tank for a couple of hours daily too. Also hot food cooked on electric hob or in the oven at least once each day and used all other facilities such as TV too. In total we (2 adults, 2 teenagers) put about £22 in the meter.

Location, Views, Amenities (in and around) First Class. Getting to know the local people, even more fun. Romantic fires, Romantic sunsets, what more could you ask for.

We 'came upon' #13, a long time ago, loved the location straight from the start. Hamish ensures everyones comfort. This is what brings us back again EVERY year....
